How to make it
- Grease a shallow casserole with olive oil and preheat oven to 350° F / 175° C.
- Flatten chicken breasts and pound gently until fairly uniform in thickness.
- Spread each breast with pesto and roll up loosely.
- Wrap each chicken breast in Prosciutto, fasten with toothpicks and lay in prepared pan.
- Crush the garlic clove and add it (along with the olives and capers, if desired) to the spaghetti sauce, then spoon the sauce around the breasts, but not covering them.
- I like the olives and capers because it gives this dish a bit of bite.
- Spread Parmesan cheese evenly over all and bake 30-40 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly and breasts are cooked through.
- Serve with penne pasta cooked al dente and a green salad.
